Symptoms of COVID-19
The safest course of action for a person feeling mild-to-moderate COVID-19 symptoms is to call their healthcare provider to determine the next step in their care.
For those who have no primary care provider or unable to reach their provider, Blessing Express Care is open from 8 am to 8 pm weekdays and 8 am - 5 pm Saturday and Sunday. No appointments are needed, but are preferred to speed up the registration and appointment process. To make an appointment at the Blessing Express Clinic please call 217-214-9626.
Any person with COVID-19 symptoms can be seen at the Blessing Express Clinic.
Patients will be asked to pay a copay for the visit and will be responsible for any charges not covered by their health insurance plan. If a provider visit is necessary, there may be additional costs and is based on the individual’s health insurance plan.
